Learning and Teaching Music in the Twenty-First Century:
The Contribution of Science and Technology
November 5 – 7, 2015
Schulich School of Music, McGill University, and
Department of Music, Université du Québec à Montréal, Québec, Canada
The aim of this bilingual (English-French) conference is to bring together researchers from instrumental and music pedagogy as well as those from performance, science performance and music practices to discuss the contribution of scientific research and technological advancements in music learning and teaching contexts in the twenty-first century.
We welcome submissions on any topic relating to learning and teaching of music cross-themed with science and technology, including (but not limited to):
Learning and teaching music – individual and collective settings – all levels/formal and informal settings
Control parameters – physiology, physics and psychology of instrumental practice
Traditional and augmented/hyper instruments
Performance and creativity
Learning and technologies
Music, health and well-being
The musician’s health and well-being
The benefits of music on health and well-being
The conference will include scientific presentations (talks, posters and discussion panels) from international researchers in Canada’s two official languages, English and French. This conference seeks to gather researchers, teachers and practitioners from across disciplines (music performance, collective and individual instrumental teaching, science of performance, musicians’ health, music learning and technology, etc.) to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and the development of evidence-based music pedagogy.
Three types of proposals associated with the topics listed above are welcome:
1. Oral scientific communication;
2. Scientific poster;
3. Panel discussion.
